New biker here from central Jersey. I just got my "new" used bike - Trek 2.1 2007. Can't wait to ride it when the weather gets better. I am going to take it to a LBS (Efinger sports in Bound B rook) to have it fitted.
Photos are attached. I am very very excited!
Pls. send any tips/hints my way. I'll very much appreciate it.
[/QUOTE]They're not a bike shop. They're a sporting goods store. They will most likely know less than you about fitting.
Do a search for bicycle shops in your town or look in the yellow pages.[/QUOTE]
I just had this post pointed out to me from a regular customer of mine, that is why I am posting almost 6 years later....
We ARE a bike shop Ron...In fact, we are more of a bike shop than most of the "shops" around us. I have run shops my entire life, and have been in the industry for over 30 years, which included time as store manager, mechanic, & bike company sales rep. My head mechanic has been in shops just as long, is a master mechanic and wheel builder. We are authorized dealers for Specialized, Giant, Cannondale, and others. Stock a full selection of accessories, clothing, shoes, etc. from companies like Thule, Shimano, SRAM, Pearl Izumi, Topeak, Park, etc. I am an SBCU certified fit tech as well. We sponsor the local cycling club, as well as their Junior Development team, as well as our sponsorship of the collegiate Rutgers Triathlon Team. SO...before you blow off in the future about how we aren't "a bike shop", do some research on what you are commenting about.
